What if our public spaces carried the intimacy of poetry?

Snow Poems Project is a community art project by Cut+Paste Society that explores cities as living books written by their inhabitants. We partnered with the Santa Fe Art Institute for Snow Poems 2012-13 in Santa Fe, NM. SP 2013 included a city-wide temporary installation of poetry on windows and cultural programming: Snow Poems Exhibition + Poetry Storm, three free public poetry workshops, outreach in schools, open submissions, walking tours, and Night of Illumination with walking poetry tours and a Snow Poems Hear Here Choir led by Molly Sturges. We also published a Snow Poems Souvenir Postcard Book of Snow Poems images and poems in 2014, so that the poems will continue to disseminate and create connection. During the winter of 2013-14, we brought Snow Poems to downtown Baton Rouge, LA as guests of Louisiana State University.
